Breaking the Poverty Cycle One Belt at a Time- Mission Belt Co.

Mission friends,

Meet Santa! She is 34 years old and lives in Calceta, Ecuador with her husband. She has two children that are in school that she and her husband are helping fund. Santa needed a small loan to purchase food and medicine for the pigs that she is raising in order to sell them to neighbors and families around her. Being able to sell the pigs has helped her to fund her children’s education so that she does not have to leave home to work, which means that she and her family can remain close together.

Breaking the Poverty Cycle One Belt at a Time- Mission Belt Co.

Mission friends, 

Meet Ruben! He is from Nicaragua and makes his living by selling bananas and different produce such as beans, corn and wheat. Ruben makes frequent trips up the mountain to bring fruit into town to sale. Ruben has been so successful already that he has plans to sell coffee to add to his business. With the loan that he was given, Ruben was finally able to the way he wanted in a timely manner. Ruben has paid his loan in full and has continued to make the frequent trips to gather produce, and now he can rest assure that those trips will remain profitable for his business. You have helped to give Ruben a hand up, not a hand out. Now someone else can use his loan to get out of the poverty cycle as well.

X Games Sponsor

 

 

We are honored to have been one of the sponsors of this year’s X Games held in Austin, Texas. We are stoked that we were able to provide Mission Belts to all of the participants. Working with athletes is always an honor because they share the same passion for their sport as we do for our Mission to ‘feed a family’. We hope that all who have participated, watched, or worked at this years’ X Games, will see our belts being worn and feel united in our cause. Congratulations to all those who won medals and broke their own personal records. We look forward to watching your success in future X Games and we are glad we could help keep your pants up while you showed off your talent!

As always, thanks for being part of The Mission!

Breaking the Poverty Cycle One Belt at a Time: Maria Antonia

Mission Friends,


Honduras is the second poorest country in Central America with 60 percent of the country being affected by poverty and 36 percent living under extreme poverty conditions. Maria Antonia is a 34 year old wife and mother of five children living in the provincial capital, La Esperanza. She was blessed to have been financed and encouraged by her parents to pursue education through her elementary years. She was also taught farming techniques in the home as it has been the main means of income for generations. Maria Antonia’s primary crops are currently potatoes, corn, beans, and coffee. She owns the land that she, her husband and children work on. Her clientele are the members of her same community that purchase their groceries at the local market.

Maria requested a loan of $1250 in order to purchase certified potato seeds, manure, fertilizer, and other things to be able to plant and harvest a quality, attractive product for her customers. Her hope is that this will bolster her productivity and provide enough economic stability so that she can make much needed improvements to her home as well as increase the amount of land that she owns. This would be so that down the road her children would have land to live on and work for themselves. We are pleased to report that not only was the loan fully funded and repaid, but also that it has increased her productivity and output. Maria also mentioned how well she was treated by those who assisted her in this loan and said that she would love to continue working with them.

Thank you all for being part of her success by being a part of the Mission. We’re breaking the poverty cycle one belt at a time!

Breaking the Poverty Cycle One Belt at a Time: Misha

Mission Friends,

Armenia is a country approximately the size of Maryland where one-third of the population lives below the poverty line. Much of the population earns their income as subsistence farmers growing only slightly more than their needs in order to sell the surplus. Misha is a 26 year old from the Tsovazard village in Gavar, Armenia. He currently lives with his parents, wife and one-year-old son. Prior to the birth of the their son, Misha’s wife worked as a dental technician but has since stopped to take care of their son. His mother is retired and his father continues working abroad for the Russian Federation. Misha has no higher education but worked for several years at a local lemonade factory. He has since found himself unemployed and turned to farming and agriculture to provide for his family.

Misha currently owns a private plot of land where he keeps three cows, one bull, three calves, six pigs and ten piglets. His mother - who has vast experience in farming - has been passing on what knowledge she can to her son to give him the best opportunity for success and to help him become the provider he wants to be. To further bolster his productivity, Misha requested a loan of $2,400 USD to buy a hay mowing machine. That loan was fully funded and currently he is well on his way to paying it back and making that money available to other striving entrepreneurs.

Thank you all for being part of his success by being a part of the Mission. We’re breaking the poverty cycle one belt at a time!

Breaking the Poverty Cycle One Belt at a Time: Diep

Mission Friends,

In this installment of “Buy a Belt, Feed a Family” we head over to Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam to learn more about Diep, a 58 yr. old mother of four. She has been working alongside her husband for the last 8 years by designing and printing advertisements that are then posted on advertising boards he makes. Diep has received two $725 loans which have given her the needed items to grow her business and help her reach greater financial stability. With the success of her first loan she was able to purchase a larger quantity of plastic, paper and other materials increasing her sales.

With her second loan she was able to build upon her first loan’s momentum and increase the size of her business to reach more customers. We are happy to report that Diep has paid back her interest free micro loans and is prospering. The loan she repaid can now be lent out to others seeking a hand up, not a hand out. Thank you all for being part of her success by being a part of the Mission.

We’re breaking the poverty cycle one belt at a time!
